I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest but knew Alaska would be my heart's home as soon as I stepped off that plane way back in the early 1980's. I saw the mountains and that was it! I love all the things that make living in Alaska so appealing: fishing, flying, skiing, hunting and long winter nights. A pilot myself, many of my stories involve aviation, strong female characters and the cultures and legends of my wild, untamed Alaska. I believe strong female characters provide a rich backdrop for hot romance, and give young girls a sense of what women can really do! My life has been a series of exciting adventures and I like to use what I have learned and experienced in my novels.
Now, (after my third try at retirement!) I am a full time Indie author. My First book, The Good, The Bad and the Bet, came out in the summer of 2014, and The Ghost of Port Chicago came out in 2015. They are both romantic suspense novels based on historical events. I am excited to announce the first book in my new series about a secret government anti-terrorist group of female vampires is now available with more in the series under development. Watch for The Vamp Squad Series: Book 1 – Strange Beginnings at most of your digital provider, or order a hard copy through CreateSpace and Amazon.
When I’m not writing, I can be found teaching women’s self defense seminars and martial arts, scuba diving in tropical locals, flying to meet my husband for a quick rendezvous in some romantic out-of-the-way spot, playing with graphic design… or just kicking back with my stories and enjoying this thing we call life.

The day before Thanksgiving in 1971, a lone man wearing black sunglasses hijacked a NW Orient Airlines 727 bound for Seattle. His demand: $200,000.00 and four parachutes. He ended up with a place in history marked by more questions than answers. What really happened to the infamous DB Cooper? No one knows. Well... No one but me... because before he became DB Cooper, I became his wife.
